Book Worm

Book Worm
Hello There Fab Free! Are you feeling that holiday rush yet? I know I am! I needed to take a minute, relax, and unwind. A favorite way to do that is to find a comfy spot to sit, pick a good book to read, and sip a warm cup of tea (or coffee).  DE.Boutique recently sent out this cozy over-sized sweater dress to their Subscriber group. Also, I took a little time to pop over to Fameshed and pick up the pile of free gifts waiting under the Christmas tree. For today, I’m excited to share with you the Fameshed gifts from MINA and Contraption. Keep reading for more info about each of these fantastic finds!

The Dress – This wine colored gradient sweater dress was sent out earlier this week to the DE.Boutique Subsciber group. It is called the Zoe dress, and it comes int several mesh sizes. I do want to point out that I am unsure if new subscribers will receive the free gift of not. I did try unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the DE.Boutique Subscriber, and the gift was not redelivered. However I would still encourage anyone to stop by DE.Boutique and join their Subscriber group to be sure and receive any future gifts. Also, check your inventory, if you’re already a DE.Boutique Subscriber, you may have received it.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ebody, Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Hair – This cute puffed up side pony is the free Fameshed group gift by MINA. The Fameshed group is free to join, and you’ll need to wear the group tag to get the gifts. You’ll find a whole pile of presents under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This hairstyle from MINA comes in a “browns” color pack, but I have to say the color range is quite broad, there are very dark almost black shades, and very deep auburn red shades along side several brunettes.

The Glasses – I love these unique glasses with their rectangular lenses. They are the free Fameshed group gift by Contraption available under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from preset colors to change the color of each lens individually, as well as the frame. You will need to wear the Fameshed group tag to get the gift, however the Fameshed group is free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

During this round of Uber, Vinyl is featuring their Red Hot Sweater Dress with a texture change belt / buttons in 16 different colours at 180L each, but also displayed with those gorgeous dresses is an exclusive snowflake printed charcoal grey version for just 75L!  This is a colour, I probably would have chosen at full price – what a deal!  It is hard to see the arms in my photo, but there are buttons on the sleeves that match the super big chunky leather belt.

Hello There Fab Free’rs! The best kind of hunt in Second Life is a free one with lots of designers! The SLF&O hunt recently started, and it’s both free and has quite a few participants. You won’t want to miss this one. I picked up this gorgeous Asian inspired robe at Belle Epoque as part of the SLF&O hunt. The robe comes in a Maitreya Lara fit only. It’s also absolutely free, you just gotta find it! The hunt object for this hunt is a fall leaf.

Recently Love sent me a teleport to Moon hair to slap their Midnight Madness board. I’m so glad she did, I love this hairstyle with this robe. This extra long flowing hairstyle is the free MM board prize at Moon. There’s no need to join any group or wear any tag to participate. Also, the prize hairstyle is a full fat pack with all the color huds included.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hello hello from Cloud 9! Well from a cloud anyway. haha I hope everyone is doing well. I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous Lucky Letter Board dress from Apple May Designs along with a beautiful group gift hairstyle from Opale. I took the photo from the back because I felt like the back of the dress and the back of the hairstyle were quite nice. I love the long understated black bow detail in the dress. I also thought the little wisps of hair in the back of this long hairstyle were a nice touch. Keep reading for the details on how to get each of these fabulous finds.

The Hair – The hairstyle Pru is wearing in the above photo is Sofa by Opale. There is a free group gift version of Sofa at Opale that includes 3 color versions. There is a blonde, a dark blonde, and a brunette color with the pretty pink and blue color fades. At this time the Opale group is free to join. The Leo hairstyle shown below is another free group gift currently available at Opale. I also saw two group gift headbands.

OPALE GROUP GIFT

The Dress – I think this sweet slip of a dress by Apple May Designs is really pretty. There are two ways you can score this dress for free or very inexpensively. Apple May Designs group members can participate in the Lucky Letter boards. There are two, one for each of the colors shown in the ad below. If you don’t want to wait for your letter to pop up and have a few lindens to spare, AMD group members can also purchase this dress for just 49 linden. There are also previous AMD group-only specials available at that price, just be sure to wear your AMD group tag. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden if you are not already a group member.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

P.S. Like the wings? They are simple yet beautiful mesh individual wings by Corvus that you can pick up on the Marketplace for just 45 linden. They also come in white!

Amber is the color of your energy

Amber is the color of your energy

Hey FabFree. I’m just hanging out, enjoying the view. Oh and wearing new, pretty, free things of course!

Short Hair

My hair is the latest free group gift from Fabia. The gift is a fatpack of hair that comes with a really great hairstyle HUD as well! You can choose to have the hair pushed behind one ear, the other ear, or neither ear. Options for days! Fabia is 100L to join if you’re not already in the group and totes worth it! There are some previous group gifts still out in the store as well. I just activated my group tag and clicked the vendor picture in the store and free hair was all miiiiiiine.

Unzipped Shorts

I’m not typically a fan of the half opened shorts look – “Zip up your pants! We’re trying to live in a society here! And get off my lawn!” But in this case I’ll make an exception because these are super cute and really well done. Yes, that’s all that it takes for me to change my mind. They are a free group gift from Un!q for the ShopaholicSL group, which is free to join. The shorts come sized for:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus

While you’re there picking up the shorts be sure to check out the gifts for other groups as well, including the Un!q store group.

And that’s all I have to show you today. Thanks for stopping by!

Don’t blame me, love made me crazy

Don't blame me, love made me crazy

Heeeey FabFree! Happy Friday! I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of me, but I wanted to pop in and show you this gorgeous dress first!

I love this dress!

I got it for only 10L from Emerald Couture at The Wash‘s cart sale. It’s such a fun, easy to wear style that’s got that almost bohemian feel to it that I just can’t get enough of. For 10L I got the dress in these sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Original
  • TMP
  • Fitted
  • 5 classic sizes, L-XXS

Plus it comes with some matching purple heels sized for Slink that I’m not wearing.

Heels, too!

My new dress looks super cute as a long flowy blouse too with a pair of jeans, and I almost wore it that way. But then I picked up these fantastic shoes from Empire today for Fifty Linden Friday and obviously I didn’t have any choice but to change my plans. These shoes are a fantastic deal! I thought it was going to just be the colors on the vendor picture (which would have been totally worth it also), but no – you’ll get a fatpack of 20 colors! Yes, please. They are sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

And each size comes in 2 versions, regular and materials. I love the sexy strappy heel and how they go aaaaall the way up to thigh height!

My back’s against the wall

My back's against the wall

Hi there! I’ve put together some pretty things to show you. I hope you like them!

Most literal title ever

There is a new free group gift at Ana Boutique, and it is a set of 3 poses designed to be used leaning up against a wall. They’re really fantastic. If you want to lean up against some walls too (and why wouldn’t you?), you’ll just need to join the free Ana Boutique group. You’ll find this pose pack and a few other free gifts on the wall above the stairs.

Hair, hair everywhere

I think that the thing that I buy the most of in SL is hair. Like, as soon as we finish up here I’m probably going to hit up the Saturday sale, where I will undoubtedly find some hair that I need and can’t live without. But when they’re on sale or free, it so hard to say no. This specific hair was FREE and it’s really cute. If that’s wrong then I don’t want to be right! I picked it up at Ayashi. There are two groups there, a free group and a paid group. This hair is a gift for the free group. Hopefully my slurl there takes you right where you need to go, but if it doesn’t there is a teleport board straight ahead when you walk into the store. Just choose Gift Room and you’ll see this pack and a few others on the wall. The super cute ‘do that I’m wearing here comes as a fatpack. I love the straight bangs and how the front is pulled back. It’s short and sassy and perfect.

Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here
Hello Fab Free’rs! I’ve packed up all I own, and I’ve got my camera. I’m ready for a long vacation, where are we going? I’d love nothing more than to be able to pack up and go on some long adventure. For now I’ll be satisfied doing my adventuring, and most of my shopping, right here in Second Life. I put together most of this look using current or previous group gifts. As always I’ll let you know all the information about how to get each one, just keep reading!

The Hair – The cute little bob hairstyle Pru is sporting is a still available May group gift at Besom. I checked there today, just to be sure. I love the slightly tousled look of this perfect-for-summer hairstyle. The Besom group is 199 linden to join, and there is more than one group gift currently available.

The Dress – This dress from Prey has the look of a structured well tailored leather dress, and the fringe just adds to the effect. It is the sort of dress you could dress up, but there’s no dressing this one down! It also happens to be the free July group gift at Prey. Love told me about it and I’m super pleased she did. The Prey group is free to join, and they also have a male gift available.

Pink Like A Flamingo

Pink Like A Flamingo
Happy Tuesday Fab Free! Once again adorable pink flamingos have found their way onto the Fab Free blog. I think this must be the summer of flamingos. Flamingo summer maybe? Either way I dig it! These cute short shorts are a new group gift at zOOm. You also might recall I mentioned a free group gift hairstyle at Letituier in my previous post “See No Evil.” This pink and blonde dip dyed hairstyle is it! Lastly, I added this cute little polka-dotted dollarbie top from Teepa to complete the look. I hope you like it!

The Hair – This fun summer hairstyle is a free group gift at Letituier. The Letituier group is free to join at this time, so don’t miss out. Also if you haven’t shopped the Retirement Sale happening at Letituier, you’ll want to be sure to do that too. The sale hairstyles are just 55 linden per color pack. This group gift style comes in the single color shown.

The Top – This one is for the Maitreya Lara body wearers. This tiny tube top is a Marketplace dollarbie by Teepa. It comes in the single size, however there are other Marketplace listings for the same top in different textures in the Teepa Marketplace store.

The Shorts – These shorts are so cute on, even though they are a tad shorter and lower than I would usually wear. They are a current group gift at zOOm. The zOOm group is 75 linden to join at this time and there is an entire shelf full of group gifts available. If flamingos aren’t you’re thing, don’t worry, this gift has a texture change hud with 10 different textures to pick from. All of them are cute!
